Recommendation for Basshead IEM's (XB's or MEElec's or any other ?)

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone,

 

I have been checking out all sorts of IEM's and have been reading reviews since last week. Finally i have picked up some iems which best suit my needs.

 

I am looking for Bassheads, so far these seem to be available locally and offer good amount of Deep Bass

 

Sony's XB41EX

Sony's XB21EX

 

MEElectronics M11+

MeElectronics M9

 

Nusphere N700x    ---|  (not really sure if its available locally)

Radius Atomic       ---|

 

Radius HP-TWF11R

 

 

Sony XB41EX as the reviews say are really really bassy, and go down really deep, i havent heard them so i cant say how deep they really go. L3000.gif.

Sony XB21EX has more controlled bass but less in quantity than xb41's

 

ME M11+ , these were recommended by Hydrocharged,(member at HeadFi) over the sony's , so i think these must pack some punch.

ME M9 , Reviews at headfi suggest that they are more bassy than M11+ , so it kinda had me confused. confused_face.gif

 

Radius HPTWF11R are dual driver IEM's and review say they go really really low and are very nice sounding for the price, only drawback is their weird design, and kinda not suitable for outdoor use. happy_face1.gif

 

 

My main expectations from my new IEM's

I want really really deep bass with quantity and quality, im not really a fan of mid bass or anything that goes above 45 Hz

Shouldnt cost more than 75$

Dont really care if Mids are recessed, Highs should be clear enough , even if they are not sparkling im fine with it.

Im willing to use EQ if necessary to tweak Mids and Highs.

 

 

 

Alright folks , Which ones should i go for ? Im also open to any other recommendation if its better than these IEM's.

The only ones I can comment on are the Meelec M6 and M9. The M9 hits harder than the M6, which already has a ton of bass. However the M6 has a better sound overall due to the improved driver housing.

I also love bass, and my Sennheiser CX 300 II are almost broken, so I'm very interested in this thread.

I would add the Thinksound ts02 to that list.

Quite bassy, but not all over the place. Decent clarity too

The Hippo Boom is very bassy yes, but it makes the music a little muddy. It is a great budget earphone for bassheads so yes if you fit that category. I would suggest the Hippo VB, which is little more refined than the boom also with basshead bass.

I'd get ether the M9 or M6 just based on the price. The M9 can be had for less than $20 nowadays, and the M6 costs less than $40. Not to mention both are available with inline iphone controls. As for the sub-bass, I *think* the M6 had a little more extension than the M9, while retaining head shaking bass.

yea and the m6 are only $22 shipped from ?egg, something or other,http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826735006                   , sounds good 

sounds like a good deal?

The MEElec SP51 is a good choice if you want sheer bass quantity and power. It's available from Amazon for $45 or so and is a pretty good deal for that price.

If you can afford $50 you should consider the Monster Turbine from Monster's Outlet site. Great bass along with everything else. You will tire of the M9 - at least I did.
